New Yorkers and visitors are in love with Infinity Mirrors NYC by Yayoi Kusama, one of the most immersive art exhibits in Chelsea. The exhibit was featured in New York twice already and we are hoping for new dates soon.
About Infinity Mirrors in NYC
After its huge success in 2017, Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama brings back the much-awaited exhibit to New York in fall 2019. Last time, the popular art installation drew 75,000 people to the David Zwirner Gallery in Chelsea and quickly became a social media sensation.
This year’s exhibit “Every Day I Pray For Love” will consist of several different interactive spaces that can be enjoyed by the observer. The exhibit surely wouldn’t be complete without Kusama’s most popular installation: a brand new Infinity Mirror Room called “Dancing Lights that flew up to the Universe”. Her rooms, full of mirrors, create a sense of endless space as if being inside a kaleidoscope.
The exhibit, however, goes beyond the famous infinity room. Kusama’s exhibit also features paintings and sculptures. As she is known for her use of polka dots, it’s safe to assume to see some of those, too!
Tickets to Infinity Mirrors
While visiting the Infinity Mirrors in NYC is free, there is a catch! Due to its popularity and the limited time in NYC, you have to prepare for long lines. When I first visited, I had to wait for about an hour to finally get a peek. This year’s exhibit will be even shorter, requiring you to bring even more time and patience with you!
Yayoi Kusama in NYC
If you can’t make it to the Infinity Mirrors NYC this year, don’t worry! Kusama’s art is already scheduled to be featured in the New York Botanical Garden next spring. From May 2nd through November 1st, 2020 you will be able to explore multiple installations, including mirrored environments, polka-dotted flowers, and sculptures.
